Such initiatives pooling in the digitalization of the virtual desktop is expected to fuel the demand for cloud-based VDI, which in turn is projected to augment market growth on a global scale. 

Surge in expansion of cloud computing technology  

The surge in the expansion of cloud computing technology is a key driver for the growth of the cloud-based VDI market. Cloud computing provides underlying infrastructure and resources required to deliver virtual desktops to end-users, making it an essential facilitating technology for cloud-based VDI solutions. This is attributed to the fact that various end-users are committing to adopt cloud based virtual desktop solutions as a part of digital transformation initiative. For instance, in April 2023, the Japanese government raised $31.7 million (4.2 billion yen) in funding to develop shared quantum computing using a business-friendly cloud platform.   

The Japanese government intends to broaden quantum computing's accessibility so that businesses may take advantage of its benefits. Therefore, cloud-based VDI gained wider traction among end-users, taking advantage of cloud computing solutions in several industries. Moreover, cloud-based VDI leverages the economies of scale provided by cloud computing. Organizations may avoid the upfront costs associated with purchasing and maintaining on-premises hardware infrastructure. Consequently, regional governments and private & public businesses invest in cloud computing solutions.   

For instance, in April 2023, Ericsson partnered with the Canadian Government to raise $352.40 million (CAD 470 million) in funding to enhance the presence of the global leaders in advanced 5G, 6G, AI, cloud RAN, and core network technologies. Such investment and advancements in cloud computing are expected to contribute to the growth of the global cloud-based VDI market. 

Digital capabilities 

Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is the creation and management of desktop environments and applications that allow employees to work and access applications and services outside the office, in the office, or from a remote location. Moreover, Since VDI makes virtual desktops easy to deploy and update from a centralized location, an increasing number of companies are implementing it for remote workers.

Furthermore, VDI is an ideal solution for environments that allow or require employees to use their own devices. Since processing is done on a centralized server, VDI allows the use of a wider range of devices. It also offers better security, since data lives on the server and is not retained on the end client device. In addition, VDI uses server hardware to run desktop operating systems (OS) like Windows or Linux, or other software programs, on a VM with the desktop OS hosted on a centralized server in a physical datacenter. 

End User Adoption 

The global cloud-based VDI market is expected to register high growth due to rise in focus of firms on digitization are expected to drive industry growth. Thus, increase in adoption of cloud-based VDI, owing to its rising smartphone penetration, soaring data telecommuting needs, surging demand for workforce productivity, are factors accelerating BYOD in the nation, particularly among industries like BFSI, telecom, media, and entertainment. Falling prices for GPU, SSDs and flash memories have also positively impacted the prices of the VDI solutions available in the market is one of the most significant factors driving the growth of the market. With surge in demand for cloud-based VDI, various companies have established alliances to increase their capabilities.

For instance, in March 202, Kasm Technologies partnered with Oracle Corporation to offer Workspaces for Oracle, a new Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) and Containerized Application Streaming (CAS) solution. This innovative solution combines the benefits of the public cloud with the security and control of on-premises infrastructure, allowing enterprises to create cloud-based remote work solutions on-demand and at a global scale. 

In addition, with further growth in investment across the world and the rise in demand for cloud-based VDI, various companies have expanded their current product portfolio with increased diversification among customers. For instance, in In September 2023, Stratodesk launched Stratodesk Managed Service Provider (MSP) program for MSPs and system integrators. The new program enables partners to offer complete services to provision and manage endpoints for hybrid workplaces. 

Moreover, with the increase in competition, major market players have started collaborating companies to expand their market penetration and reach. For instance, January 2021, Cloud4C collaborated with Citrix to offer Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service for enterprises to leverage unmatched security and mobile workforce capabilities.
